Year 7/8 class I have done this for an observation next week. Not used yet. Just a good way to learn more vocabulary and use "I would like." in another context.
Don't say I never share
I also will include a message from father Xmas P NP in French (look under google) you can upload the photo of students but ask permission first. Guaranteed effect
A range of 6 French Christmas worksheets, they can be used for a cover lesson or as part of a lesson when you want to use Christmas as the theme but still focus on learning. A variety of activities including translation, vocabulary builders, topic vocabulary; nouns, verbs, adjectives and cultural awareness.
A word exchange activity which requires pupils to translate 20 Christmas gifts from French to English. They attempt it first on their own, then paired up, then they circulate to exchange answers with pupils around the room.
This would lead nicely into writing a letter to Father Christmas. I have a template for this available in my Christmas Bundle or on its own- just search in my shop.
A festive lesson that studies the French Christmas song 'Petit Papa Noel' aimed at Y7 or Y8. You need to find the lyrics of the song and to print them for the students to do the activities. I make it a competition between groups. As a starter I put the video of the Bebe Lilly version to grab their attention and then show them other versions (including Tino Rossi´s, but there's another sang by Celine Dion and the Chipmunks!). They generally ask for Bebe Lilly again at the end. Have fun!
A challenging Christmas quiz. 40 questions that will really challenge students knowledge about all things to do with Christmas. This is quite a tricky quiz and has been written with Key Stage 3, 4 and 5 in mind. Provided in easy to print list form and also as a visually festive slideshow with a slide per question so that questions can be displayed on the whiteboard.
Also included is a Christmas colouring book - easy to print images of snowflakes for early finishers to add creative colour to. Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year from Start Education!
This is a text where a girl talks about her family traditions for Christmas: where she goes, what she eats, who she meets, what she likes or not about Christmas. The text is followed by 8 comprehension exercises (4 pages) and a mark scheme. The first exercise is labelling pictures about xmas (words are found in the text). The other exercises are GCSE AQA style. The text includes present, past, future tense, opinions. Some simple and more complex sentences. Good for top set year 9 and GCSE.
This resource is intended for Year 7 - Year 9 students to help them with vocabulary related to Christmas. It requires them to think and remember words that they will learn for Christmas. They will need to write the words in French with the English equivalent. It shouldn't take them more than 1 lesson.
This is a Christmas booklet thought for KS3 students. The booklet contains 6 activities (including a wordsearch and designing a Christmas card) and a vocab page to help them. I also have a Christmas presentation that might be useful to go with this.
This presentation explains the perfect tense with avoir and uses Christmas as a theme to introduce 12 sentences with different verbs. It shows how to link them together to create a paragraph. This can be used with students who have not seen the perfect tense before as an introduction, I have used this with year 7 students at the end of their first year or students with some experience of the perfect tense as a revision lesson.
